ARTIST STATEMENT
The concept behind this piece revolves around kinetics and the relationship between an object and its user.  To address this I created a piece that reacts to the wearer’s motion and cannot be fully appreciated in its static form, rather it must be worn to be understood.  The components of the piece act as pendulums when worn.  The two ‘legs’ have different weights on them and are offset on differing pivot points, as a result they swing at contrasting rates.  This creates a unique relationship of motion.  It is eye catching without being overpowering.  While this piece is designed to be a treat for the viewer, the user is also treated to a secret experience through their use of the custom designed brooch back.  This mechanism is an experience just for those who use the piece.
